Category -- Color Stencil on Hand Crumpled Momigami Paper Laborers in the Vineyard Artist: Sadao Watanabe Description: A delicate yet rich design of black against a white background with men, birds, and fruits in a vineyard. Reminiscent of embroidery or tapestry, the story is told in horizontal layers by means of figures in twos and threes. A trellis of grapevine appears along the top, and the tall figure of Christ is placed in the center. Christ raises a large finger and looking out towards us, concludes, "so those who are last will be first, and those who are first will be last." An outstanding large, rare print. Issued: 1958 Medium: color stencil Edition: 25/50 Condition: Excellent; light water stain at left lower corner.
